About attended robot in UiPath Guide

robot

#1

Hi everyone,

I am confused when reading UiPath Orchestrator Guide and UiPath Robot Guide:
In Robot Guide, I found this:
https://robot.uipath.com/v2018.1/docs/introduction

Attended - operates on the same workstation as a human, to help the user accomplish daily tasks. It is usually triggered by user events. You cannot start a process from Orchestrator on this type of Robots, and they cannot run under a locked screen.

and in Orchestrator Guide:
https://orchestrator.uipath.com/docs/introduction

Attended - This type of Robot is triggered by user events, and operates alongside a human, on the same workstation. Attended Robots are used with Orchestrator for a centralized process deployment and logging medium.

Is the guide means that you can not start attented robot with orchestrator but you can deploy it?

Best Regards,
Kekela

HI, Basically to my knowledge, attended robots are mainly triggered based on demand, so its suggested to triggered based on user events i.e when ever its required. Something like when user presses certain key combinations (ctrl+shift +m).

Also i guess they can be triggered from Orchestrator but it requires human intervention to complete successfully, as we would have designed in that fashion.

I believe you are correct (we only have unattended robots ourself)
The attended robot can report back to orchestrator (for logging and such), and you can deploy workflows from orchestrator to the robots, but you cannot start or stop processes. A user at the machine will have to do that.
If you want to run fully automated, you have to get an unatteded.

maybe my post can help you
